According to financial books, King Edward III created the estate way back in 1337, valued at around $1 billion.
According to CNN, the estate's revenue is utilised in funding charitable activities and public coffers.
Lancaster University lecturer Laura Clancy who is also an author of a book on royal finances, said:
"Royal wills are hidden, so we have no idea actually what's in them and what that's worth, and that's never ever made public."
In 2021 Forbes estimated the late monarch's personal fortune was worth $520 million.
The value was on the Queen's collection of jewellery, art, Scotland's Balmoral Castle, Sandringham House, which she inherited from her father, King George IV and investments.
